Biometric System Based Electronic Voting Machine with security algorithm and password protection on ARM Microcontroller and GSM

Muni Venkateswarlu, Y.V.Vijay kumar


Electronic voting meant for casting vote and counting votes electronically. This voting technology include punch cards, optical scan voting systems and Direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting systems. It can also involve transmission of ballots and votes via telephones, private computer networks, or the Internet. Electronic voting systems has much more advantages compared to other voting techniques. An electronic voting system can be involved in any one of a number of steps in the setup, distributing, voting, collecting, and counting of ballots, and thus may or may not introduce advantages into any of these steps. The main aim of this project is develop a Electronic Voting Machine with maximum security facilities.
